  1. Remus Exhaust: Detailed Review

    So I have a question for other owners. I'm wondering if I'm hearing a rattle, or if it's just the way the exhaust sounds. I only hear it over about 4k rpm under load so it's making boost. Initially I thought it was just a raspy sound to the exhaust, but the other day I realized it makes...
  2. Horrendous rhythmic chirping noise

    Also, it just occurred to me that the 2020 get the new two piece brakes. Maybe it's something going on with those?
  3. Horrendous rhythmic chirping noise

    @tacthecat and @calonzo both hit the nail on the head. If it's only after you drive for a bit it's something that's getting hot. It definitely sounds like something rubbing. Since it's tied to your speed you know it's between the front wheels and the trans, or rear wheels and the hub. In...
  4. Horrendous rhythmic chirping noise

    Have you actually inspected to make sure there isn't a rock stuck between the rotor and brake shield, or are you just using the reasoning above to make that assumption? I ask because based on the reasons listed, it sounds like you may not understand the sound and the cause of the noise being...
  5. Audio issues with 2020 Type R

    I wasn't very impressed with the factory sound in my 2019. I spent about $750 and added a new center speaker along with a DSP, sub and amp tied into factory sub output. Still wasn't too happy with it, but it sounded better. Then I ran wires to feed the sub amp from the front speakers and...
  6. How much have you spent so far on your CTR?

    I'm at about 20k so far, with at least half being wheels/tires and PPF/ceramic. FBO with custom flex fuel etune from Jeff Evans. Have a set of Enkei's with all seasons and Gram Lights with summer tires and various cosmetic upgrades. I'm done for now but hoping to do fuel system upgrade and...
  7. 2018-2019 Fuel Pump Motor Recall

    Yeah, thankfully it's a pretty small service center and I'm fairly confident they will take care of my car. I actually told the service advisor and the tech to make sure it doesn't get washed, more so because it's ceramic coated with zero swirls and I'd like to keep it that way. I spoke with...
  8. 2018-2019 Fuel Pump Motor Recall

    So my car went in today and this is the first CTR they have done (not sure if the hatch is the same) so I told the tech about the sending unit being easy to break. I think he and the service advisor (who I know somewhat outside of his job from local car meets) kinda dismissed my warning...
  9. What did you do to your Type R today?

    I've run the Perrin inserts for the last couple months and the only time I notice any vibration is when sitting still running the AC, and even then it's minimal. Definitely worth it imo, especially considering it's only about $30.
  10. Custom Type R Plate Ideas

    Tough call, they are very different. S2K feels much more raw compared to the CTR. I'm going on 4 years of ownership on the S2K, compared to 1 year with the CTR and I honestly enjoy driving both equally. I like that I can rip around in the S2K and it feels fast, but really isn't (stock power...
  11. Custom Type R Plate Ideas

    I'll give a hint: the middle 3 letters are one word
  12. Custom Type R Plate Ideas

    I shamelessly stole this in the great state of WV, except we don't have a golfer option. It's amazing how long it takes people to figure it out, and I always get a laugh as they say it over and over with a confused look on their face. I felt it paired well with the plate on my other car..
  13. Fatherpain’s 2018 Type R

    That "sensor" is actually your clutch slave cylinder. The rubber boot on the right houses the piston that pushes against the clutch fork to disengage the clutch. The little black rubber cap on the left is where you'd bleed your clutch fluid. I love following your build. You do a great job of...
  14. Ceramic Coating Fail?

    Another thought that might help, most shops that use commercial grade ceramic coatings need to be certified by the coating manufacturer to purchase and apply said coating. You may try contacting the coating company themselves and voicing your concerns. They may in turn revoke this shops...
  15. RAYS CTR FK8 Spec Wheel Options

    I'm completely satisfied with the ride and performance. I expected they may rub a bit, but since I'm usually alone or +1 I'm not too concerned.
  16. RAYS CTR FK8 Spec Wheel Options

    I'm running these wheels in the size listed, with Michelin PS4S in 255/40-18 at stock height. I've had some minor rubbing with a couple people in the car in sport mode. Torque steer is definitely increased, though it's not horrible and I'm also FBO with a custom tune making it a bit more...
  17. 2018 Premium Audio System

    Yeah I use Android and I can 100% tell a difference. I can turn it on and off and it makes a world of difference when it's on.
  18. What did you do to your Type R today?

    I had no issues removing the other stud. I ended up removing the band clamp on the turbo and taking the entire turbine housing to the machine shop. Re-assembly wasn't too bad, except for dealing with the wastegate actuator. While I was able to remove it without removing the actuator arm, it...
  19. What did you do to your Type R today?

    This mirrors my experience almost exactly, up to the point where I kept trying and eventually snapped the stud. I tried every type of exactor available (including the style shown above) and then tried welding a large nut on the end. After breaking a small bit of the stud off with the welded...
  20. 2018 Premium Audio System

    If you haven't yet, look into HondaHack and Viper4Android. Makes a world of difference with adjusting to fix the DSP issues.
